Project Do Better works to create a society where every child is safe, and that is more fully inclusive for all of us. The most recent draft of the book for this project is here:
Project Do Better presents a vision of a world in which we all work toward a full safety net, and a better tomorrow, for all of us.
I have a request to make:
I believe that planning ahead is a good idea, so:
Feedback on the chapters can most easily be commented upon, for
chapters 7 and 8, and
the last three chapters, 9-11.
We need, still, a central portal set up for the project (any volunteers to do that, please?).
The sections, of my nonfiction WiP Do Better, every Wondering Wednesday, seek to build up a Community of Interest around this vision to both share the idea, and eventually also help to share the work, as this project will obviously be inter-generational. I’ve tried to explain the entire idea in the post for the Preface to this book, which several readers found helpful in clarifying my idea. I am starting with my rough draft, which I’ve been posting to share for later comparison with other Willing Workers On Our Future, hopefully younger than I am, who wish to take up the baton.
So, any sort of way that anyone would like to participate is great, from
1. simply liking and commenting on these posts, to
2. reposting or otherwise sharing any Wondering Wednesdays posts, to
3. posting your own publications on The Educational Round Robin blog, if you wish, and I can give you publishing authority to do this, as I’ve already given others, to
4. actively collaborating on this book or the project detailed in the book, as there are many areas to subdivide, between now and the next 60 years, and many hands will be needed.
So, in terms of what you can do, there are as many ways to contribute to this work as there are individuals with their own callings to read and share, to write, to draw, to teach, to build, etc!
In terms of being a part of what works to make the world a more just place, certainly there are many ways. What is essential to hold on to is the idea that there is more than just the one song, strike, campaign, movement, or even decade: each action that we take must be tied to a larger picture, so that that movement will keep generating progress for the whole, and to remember that there is always a next step to take.
1.) Share your thoughts on how this project could be improved, in the comments, here, please. Consider sharing some ideas you may have on how our society can solve homelessness and child abuse, starting right now,
2.) Write a book, story, post or tweet that uses those sources and your thoughts, then share it with us!

Stayed on Freedom’s Call
includes two ‘imagination-rich’ walking tours, with songs, of Washington, DC. New interviews and research are woven into stories of old struggles shared by both the Jewish and African-American communities in the capital city.
Shared histories are explored from a new perspective of cultural parallels and parallel institution-building which brought the two communities together culturally and historically.
Please let us know if you’ve read it! 🙂
